My custom hotkey to insert a timestamp does nothing.


  • I'm using xdotool for the command.
  • My Ubuntu version is 16.04 LTS.
  • The timestamp I want to produce is YearMonthDayHourMinuteSecond (I think that's how it's written). E.g., 20210429113113.
  • The shortcut I want to use is Ctrl+Alt+D.
